Ventana Wilderness Area is a vast inland wilderness that is adjacent to the coastal paradise that is Big Sur. The wilderness contains a maze of wonderful hiking trails. Cone peak on the south end of the wilderness is the highest mountain in the park at five thousand feet. Cone peak marks the southern terminus for the range of the coastal redwood. The trail to the top of Cone peak is a challenge, but the reward is some of the most beautiful coastal vistas in all of California.
